quote this. and i think they are losing ground on fiscal issues. on the debt ceiling, it made no sense to risk the full faith and credit of the united states for whatever agenda you have. the business community felt that. the public felt that. and so the fact that they have backed off both -- not only the idea that we should hold debt ceiling hostage, but second that it shouldn't be one for one cuts, you know, boehner used to say that, the house proposal doesn't say that, dollar in cutting for every dollar in raising the debt ceiling. >> would you support a short-term measure to force you to pass a budget? >> i think it should be longer because we don't want to play fiscal cliff every three months. but it's a positive step. >> you never get a clean debt ceiling raise. >> yes, you should. >> that's not a question of whether you should. but historically it's not been the case. >> mitch mcconnell proposed it two years ago and we passed it. but let me say this on the budget. we democrats have always intended to do a budget this year. for two reasons. first, it is not true that we haven't had

have some issues coming up. the debt ceiling obviously one of them. the second question is we start to get the economic data. how big of a hit from the tax increaseses, payroll tax holiday, and what do those numbers which may be a bit on the soft side do to stocks? >> absolutely. that is the question of the day, isn't it, jared. the ceiling debate, the u.s. set to hit that $16 trillion limit on borrowing in the next month if we haven't hit it yet. let's take a listen to what president obama had to say about the potential battle looming in congress. >> markets could go haywire, interest rates would spike for anybody who borrows money. every homeowner with a mortgage, every student with a college loan, every small business own whole wants to grow and hire. >> jared, how does this play out? >> well, we're beginning to hear lots of sounds from republicans that we're in a compromising mode than we heard, say, a week ago. right now they're talking about perhaps an increase in the debt ceiling that lasts for a couple of months, that is offering that to the president. frankly, and russ say

economy. i think the question is how much will these issues from washington, whether it's the debt ceiling, the sequester, the lingering uncertainty over the long-term budget picture undermine confidence, lower the valuations of u.s. companies because people just have less confidence in long-term trajectory. >> jared, president obama starts his second term next week. his inauguration, of course, monday. what has he done right in the last four years, in your view, what could he have done better or has he done wrong? >> four years ago right around this time when i was a member of the administration's economic team i was remembering just the juks of position about the great hope and expectations and just the real horror of what was going on in macro economy. gdp contracting at 9%, losing 700, 800,000 jobs per month. i think the president came in and hit very hard and broke the back of the great recession a lot sooner than people expected, certainly the financial markets were reflated much more quickly than -- and at less ek pence than people expected. and pretty soon, really by the second hal

to shut down government, to let the debt ceiling hang out, to risk a loss of credit, are they still on that same front? >> i think they are seeing the handwriting on the wall. when you look at these bipartisan votes, you have paul ryan voting for higher taxes. you have both ryan and rubio voting for immigration reform now. and i think you're going to see enough votes in the center to raise the debt ceiling without any kind of -- chris: are they jumping shark on this? >> i think so. i think the public is certainly sick of it. and i also think the business community doesn't want to hear anything about shutting down the government. chris: you're the expert. i real me mean this. people advise me on making financial decisions. they think the economy looks pretty good. don't mess it up. >> it does look pretty good, as best we can tell. the one thing to remember is it's not just the debt ceiling. it's these automatic cuts that are scheduled to take place march 16789 the debt ceiling isn't their only opportunity to try to get the president to agree to cuts. there are looming deadlines. so i

, in washington. the debt ceiling fight that's on the horizon. is this going to impact the broad economy in the earning season, do you think? >> i guess this whole political thing is these are all the bricks in the wall of worry that equity markets are continuing to climb. you know, we know how to talk about these things, they're out there, in the media a lot. we follow them sometimes like a sport. maybe we exaggerate a little bit how much these political match nations, i don't want to minimize them but i think sometimes we miss the point that there are really good companies out there who figured out how to make really good money with all of this political noise going on. >> and yet, greg, so many potholes ahead. you know we're going to see a lot of back and forth over raising the debt ceiling, sequestration is still on the horizon now. less than two months away. the continuing resolution. i want you to take a listen to the president's spokesperson this week on the debt ceiling and get your reaction to that. >> sure. >> he will not negotiate with congress when it comes to the ess

, to consider some sort of executive action on this debt ceiling issue. i know you've said you're not negotiating and your administration has ruled out the various ideas that were out there, the 14th amendment, but just this morning one of the house members asked you to use the 14th amendment and said sometimes that's what it takes. he brought up the proclamation and he compared the debt ceiling to that. so are you considering a plan b? and if not, why not? >> well, chuck, the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. and so there is a very simple solution to this. congress authorizes us to pay our bills. now, if the house and the senate want to give me the authority so that they don't have to take these tough votes, if they want to put the responsibility on me to raise the debt ceiling, i'm happy to take it. mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate, had a proposal like that last year, and i'm happy to accept it. but if they want to keep this responsibility, then they need to go ahead and get it done. and there are no magic tricks h

is live on capitol hill with more on that and the eternal tug of war over the debt ceiling. good morning. >> seems eternal at this point. that's the big issue here. they have to deal with that unfinished business first when it comes to superstorm sandy. $50 billion up to a vote today in immediate and long-term funding for those victims up and down the east coast. while there's some republican objection to spending this money without balancing that with some cuts somewhere, it looks like it will probably pass. speaking of cuts, we've got more spending cuts coming up march 1st if congress doesn't figure out what to do about the budget and the debt ceiling so we can borrow more money to pay off what we committed to spend. president obama says those are two separate issues. borrowing more and spending cuts. republicans disagree. the president says you can't use one as a bargaining chip for the other. it may delay social security and veterans benefits checks but republicans insist these issues are linked. we'll see how that debate continues to play out as the president gets ready to release his report on what he can do about gun control without congr

problems, debt ceiling, has continued to be a big problem and in a few months they'll have to debate that issue again. so there are a number of priorities. i don't know how specific he'll be in his speech today because generally presidents like to focus on large scale issues that everyone sort of agrees on and talk generally about needing to come together as a country. i think he's going to try to make it an inspirational speech. i don't know how specific he'll be about particular issues. >> with that said, in three weeks from now he'll give the state of the union. how do you come up with a speech today and how does that differ from what we expect to hear three weeks from now? >> he's been working for several months on this speech to try to make one big last plea i guess for national unity. he's trying to make it a memorable speech and inspire people. i would imagine he's looking for something that will motivate americans to sort of come together and perhaps young people. that was a core demographic for him like john kennedy inspiring a new generation to public service. so i think probably it will be

the debt ceiling increase which seems like a ritual now where we go up to the edge of that cliff and then at the last-minute we deal with that. there still is continuing problems. i think part of the theme is continuity trying to address the problems that have persisted over the last four years. >> thank you so much. we'll talk to you one more time. thank you so much. >>> the time now is 6:16. right now we want to give you a check of the day's top stories. the san francisco 49ers on top of the world heading to the super bowl. the team arriving at san jose international airport last night after beating the falcons 28-24. it was a spectacular victory. they'll face the baltimore ravens in super bowl xlvii in two weeks. >>> 100 people are allowed to return to their homes near sacramento after a freight train derailed sunday morning. hazmat crews had to evacuate the entire neighborhood when a clear substance started leaking from one of the cars. that liquid was not dangerous. >>> five of the six suspects accused in the rape and death of a medical student in india will be in an indian cour
